Old Magic by Marianne Curley

This was a great read. I finished it very quickly and was easily draw into the story. I have not read very many books that take place in the distant past. Kate is not your typical high school student. Kate is a witch...and from the moment Jarrod walks into her classroom she knows that he is different. There is something powerful and a little peculiar about the new kid. He is awkward, clumsy, and to tries to keep to himself, but the laws of high school prevail when a classmate targets him immediately. Jarrod’s reaction to the hazing shocks Kate. Before Kate’s eyes a storm begins brewing in the classroom only, Jarrod doesn’t seem to know that he is responsible.

When Kate approaches him he dismisses her assurances that he has powers. He has never believed in the paranormal and for good reason. His family has always had horrible luck. If he was a witch or had anything “supernatural” hiding up his sleeve he wouldn’t have had the life he’s had. Lucky for Kate his interest in her means he humors her.

After discovering that a curse is the cause of all of his family’s problems, Jarrod and Kate travel back to when the curse originated. But fitting in will prove to be difficult. This is where the story really takes off. Will they be able to break or prevent the curse? And if they do what will it do to the future they return to? This book is full of mystery, suspense, action, magic, self discovery, and of course a touch of romance. I highly recommend it!
